Review - Night Wounds - Allergic To Heat

Night Wounds - Allergic To Heat

View The Review

8 out of 10

Deranged stuff indeed. This band may feature 3 members, or it might be 4. They play very, VERY angular, skronky noise rock that throws in enough left-field elements to avoid lazy post-rock/noise rock pigeon-holing. Songs are short (with the exception of closer X.O.T.) influences are even more random. I detect Naked City, Fugazi, The Residents, Melvins and a whole heap of unidentifiable shapes as well. Night Wounds certainly have me thinking.

Thinking that this is either the best thing I have heard in ages or a chaotic mess. I have come to the conclusion that it's a good thing, the chaotic mess that is. And any band that cover Death In June so greatly are always going to win points in my book.

Seriously deranged, good stuff.
